I NTRODUCTION OF NEW BUSINESS BY COMMISSIONERS 

Commissioner Flynn requested that staff report to the Commission 
on the actual times (not the scheduled headway) buses on the 30 
Express line are passing the corner of Thornton Avenue and 
Bayshore Boulevard and other points along the line. 

Commissioner Sanger asked when staff would present a transit 
priority street plan. Mr. Sklar replied that it would probably be 
at the first meeting in February. 

Commissioner Sanger stated that presently the effective evening 
peak period extends to 6:30 P.M. He requested that staff look 
into this situation. 

Commissioner Sanger asked that reconsideration of the Commission's 
stand on the Tuolumne River project be calendared for January 22, 
1980. 

Item No. 7 — Consideration of the Status of the Muni Metro 
Program. 

Mr. Sklar stated that lack of a sufficient number of trained 
operators is the major factor delaying the start of Muni Metro 
service. He said that every second Friday, beginning with January 
18, 1980, he will announce whether of not service will commence 
10 days later. If not, on Friday two weeks later, he will again 
announce if service can begin 10 days later. This will continue 
until actual start-up. Mr. Sklar summarized the status of other 
key elements of the system that may have an effect on the actual 
start-up date. 

Item No. 10 — Assigning Municipal Railway Transit Agreement. 

Mr. Sklar reported on negotiations with New York Subways Advertising, 
and said that a tentative agreement had been reached. By the next 
meeting a negotiated document should be submitted for the 
Commission's approval. This item was continued to the next meeting. 

Resolution No. 80-0006 — Designating January 29, 19 80 for a Public 
Hearing on Muni fares. 

It was moved by Commissioner Sanger and seconded by Commissioner 
Flynn that a record be kept of the five neighborhood public meetings 
on Muni fares and incorporated as part of the public hearing. The 
motion passed unanimously. 

Item No. 9 — Regarding lease with Santa Clara Sand and Gravel 
Company . 

Commissioner Sanger expressed concern about negotiating a new lease 
for 20 years rather than putting it out for bid; determining the 
proper index for royalty payments; and the lessee's continued 
deferral of the reclamation plan. 

Commissioner Flynn stated that the Commission should receive 
payment now for reclamation agreed to in the lease but not done. 

It was agreed to continue this item to March 25, 1980. During the 
interim the lessee will continue to mine and pay royalties as 
provided in the lease, members of the Commission and staff will 
inspect the site and counsel will request Alameda County to grant 
an extension of time for filing a reclamation plan, which is due 
January 15, 19 80.

SAN FRANCISCO MUNICIPAL RAIL^TAY SCHEDULE OF 
RATES, FARES AND CHARGES, AND OBTAIN PUBLIC 
COMMENTS 



No action was taken. 

Mr. Richard Sklar, General Manager of Public Utilities stated that the 
Municipal Railway needs $125 million during fiscal year 1980-81 to 
maintain the current level of service and start Muni Metro service. 
He outlined current sources of funding, which add up to a $44 million 
shortfall. The proposed fare package would raise $21 million from 
fares, $18 million from State AB 1107 funds and an additional $5-6 
million this fiscal year if made effective in March or April. 

Commissioner McCrea solicited comments from the public regarding the 
following: 

flat fare increase vs discount for off peak travel 

. ■ cable car fare vs standard fare 

should senior and student fares be increased in 
proportion to the standard fare, or what kind of 
a discount should they receive 

what relationship should the Fast Pass take in 
relationship to the standard fare. 

The meeting was opened to the public. 

Don Conners, representing Citizens Action League, spoke in opposition

and a 50<: general fare,

senior citizens. 

Kay Field, representing American Association of Retired People and the 
Forest Knolls Neighborhood Association, supported a 10* senior citizen 
fare. 

Robert Levy said that the cost of living has doubled since 1967. He 
suggested that Muni fares double across the board — not more for 
seniors and less for Fast Pass users. 



80-6 



Howard Strassner suggested parking tax increases. 

W.J. O' Sullivan, President of San Francisco unit of Retired Railway 
Employees, opposed the proposed senior citizen fare.

transfer.

for her husband, and $33,00 for her tliree children for a total of 
$104.00 per raonth.

2 weeks.

The meeting was opened to the public.

citizens opposed to the fare increase. 

Julius Zamacona opposed a 25<: fare for senior citizens and children, 
and said 15<; is enough. 

Maggie Olesen spoke in opposition to fare increases, especially for 
senior citizens, children and the blind. 

Robert Rohatch, President of I.L.U.U. Pensioners, opposed raises for 
seniors and supported the proposal of the Citizens Action League. 

Joe Lynch, representing the Congress of California Seniors, opposed a 
raise in senior citizens fare. 

Marion Aird, representing C.O.M.O. , suggested that the cable car

IOC or 15C senior fare. 

Cornell Gatewood , President, Transport Workers Union, Local 250A, said 
that the drivers provide a vital service, just as police or fire pro- 
tection is necessary. He said Muni service should be free. He

of the City and County of San Francisco, opposed the fare package, 
particularly the senior citizen fare.

those on fixed incomes. 



80-10 



Alceste Zanarini opposed a raise in senior citizens fares. 

Robert Caldwell opposed fare increases. 

Charles Gross, a Muni operator, suggested retaining the present 25<: 
fare except for out-of-town conunuters who should pay $1.00; seniors 
should ride free from 10:00 a.m. to IsOO p.m.? students should also 
ride free until 4:00 p.m. when they would be charged 20<?; a group 
fare for 6 persons should be $1.00, and cable cars should be $1.00.

proposal and discontinuance of the transfer. 

Steve Birnbaum said Fluni is no different from the Police and Fire

Gruen & Associates, did not look at alternatives to fund Muni other 
than a fare increase.

Peter Ehrlich, a Muni operator, supported retaining the present fare 
of 25* and charging 10* for a transfer.

$2-1/2 billion for this City. If the buses were free, they would 
still pay for themselves,

toll tcix, garage tax and 10* a gallon tax on gasoline. 

Alice Fialkin, a Muni operator, supported free transportation as a 
basic service, just as education or medical care are basic services.

PUBLIC HEARING — TO COMSIDER ADOPTION OF A 
REVISED SCHEDULE OF RATES, FARES AND CHARGES 
TO BE CHARGED 3Y THE MUNICIPAL RAILI7AY 



President Peter McCrea summarized the testimony given at the six public 
meetings as follows: 

Almost everyone opposed a 25'J: fare for the elderly. 

The majority felt that Fast Pass usage should be encouraged 
through more attractive pricing and better marketing. 

Parents and students felt that 25<: for students v/ould be 
a financial burden, and they also suggested a Fast Pass 
for students. 

Many people said that cable car fares should be raised to 
$1.00 a ride. 

Most of those testifying felt that the City should look 
outside the fare box for revenues from other sources. The 
three most commonly mentioned sources were an increase in 
parking taxes and rates, increase in business taxes and an 
increase in the gasoline tax. 

Three blind individuals, representing three organizations 
for the blind, testified that blind persons should pay a 
fare and be included in the handicapped fare.

service on Monday, February 18, 1980. 

Mr. Richard Sklar reported on the experience of the last three 
days where non-paying passengers have been carried in the subway 
under test conditions. He recommended start-up of revenue 
service on the N-JUDAH line beginning Monday morning,

and the discontinuance of surface stops along Market Street. 
Mr. Sklar said that on Thursday and Friday, notices would be 
placed on the cars and handouts given to passengers. 
On Monday, Muni will have people at key loading points to 
inform the public, and the operators will announce the Metro 
station stops before the car enters the tunnel. 

President McCrea requested that signs be posted at each PCC 
streetcar stop. 

Commissioner Flynn asked if the Muni Metro system has a written 
clearance from the Fire Department. Mr. Sklar said he received 
a verbal clearance. 

Deputy Fire Chief Murphy, who appeared at the request of the 
Commission, said that the system meets the Fire Department's 
standards except for minor items which Muni's staff is working 
to correct.

contracting with Double O. Trucking.

audit of Double 0. Trucking to determine if the firm qualifies 
as a minority ov;ned business. 

Contract WD No. 16 50 v/as awarded to Underground Construction 
Company subject to the provision that if the staff's audit 
determines that Double O. Trucking dogg not qualify as a 
minority owned business then the contractor would be 
instructed to substitute a company that meets the MBE standard.

REPORT OF THE GENERAL I-IAMAGER 

Mr. Richard Sklar , General Manager of Public Utilities, reported that 
Iluni Metro is doing well and that two car trains are running during 
the rush hours. Ilovrever, the sv/itch at Embarcadero Station is causing 
a problem. 

INTRODUCTION OF NE^T BUSINESS BY COMMISSIONERS 



Commissioner Sanger stated that he has observed on several occasions, 
a problem with broken trolley poles on the No. 8 Market line. Mr. 
Sklar said that Frank Baggetta would look into this and report at the 
next meeting. 

Commissioner Pilcher said that Mr. Pious Lee has asked for the gift 
of a cable car to send to San Francisco's sister city, Tai Pei, China. 
Since the City cannot spare a cable car. Commissioner Pilcher 
suggested that a set of plans for the car be given instead. 

Resolution No. 80-0071 — Public Hearing — Authorizing the filing of 
grant application for the Cable Car Reconstruction and Improvement 
Program, (A transcript of this public hearing is on file in the 
office of the Secretary of the Public Utilities Commission.) 

Mr, Oral L. Moore, Deputy General Manager and Chief Engineer, PUC, 
presented revised figures based on the current actual escalation rate 
of 1.375, compounded monthly, rather than the consultant's estimate of 
1% per month, 

Mr. Sklar said that the Department of Public !-^orks has notified the 
staff that the sev/ers and other underground utilities should be re- 
placed when the street is opened to reconstruct the track and under- 
ground systems. 

Commissioner Sanger expressed concern about the system being shut 
down for two summers, and possibly three if the schedule slips. 

Commissioners McCrea and Pilcher expressed concern about DP\J not 
meeting our construction schedule and prolonging the shutdown period. 

Commissioner Flynn requested that the staff report to the Commission 
on its progress in raising the additional $2-1/4 million for the 
City's share of the escalated costs. 



30-54 



The meeting x^as opened to the publico 

Hr. Fred Perry, Vice President, Citizens Advisory Panel, expressed 
concern about coD3mitments by suppliers for rail and depression becuns. 

''Ir. Virgil Caselli, representing Ghirardelli Square and Fisherman's 
Wharf, expressed concern about an extended shutdown period due to 
utility interfacing. He suggested that DPT7 share in the cost of 
opening the streets and replacing the rails. 

Mr. IJorman Rolfe, representing San Francisco Tomorrow, spoke in favor 
of approving this grant application. 

President McCrea said that the Board of Supervisors should decide as 
the City's policy whether the cable car system is shut down for 2 years 
or allowed to deteriorate and then patched up; also, whether the sewer 
and other underground utilities should be replaced at the same time 
and as a result prolong the shutdown period. 

Mr. Sklar suggested that a letter be sent to the Board of Supervisors 
requesting a public hearing on these issues. 

Resolution Uo. 30-0071 was unanimously approved subject to a revised 
cost estimate being presented to the Commission before the application 
is submitted to UMTA. 



Item No. 9 — Reconsideration of policy regarding the Clavey and !-7ards 
Ferry Projects. 

Mr. Sklar requested that this matter be put over pending review of the 
draft Update of Project Economics prepared by R.U. Beck and Associates. 



Resolution No. 80-0085 — Approving lease with Mountain View Apartments. 

Commissioner Sanger objected to a reduced rental during the construc- 
tion period and proposed a rental of $11,175 annually. Mr. Jack 
Baskin, the lessee, agreed to pay that amount. 



Item No. 19 — Employee Referral Program. 

Commissioner Sanger requested that this item be put over until 
March 25, 1980. 



Resolution No. 80-0093 — Approving agreement with San Francisco 
Promotional Group. 

Commissioner Sanger requested an escalator clause. Mr. Sklar 
suggested that the City receive $100.00 or 255 of the retail price for 
promotional cable car bells, whichever is greater, or $25.00 or 10%, 
whichever is greater, for each bell sold at wholesale.

PUBLIC HEAPING — TO CONSIDER ADOPTION 
OF A REVISED SCHEDULE OF RATES, FARES AND 
CHARGES TO BE CHARGED BY THE MUNICIPAL 
RAILWAY 



President Peter McCrea stated that the public hearing was to 
consider additional . revisions and additional proposals to 
the Muni fare increase that was submitted to the Board last 
month . 

Mr. Richard Sklar, General Manager of Public Utilities, stated 
that in the staff recommendations there were seven (7) 
proposals, many to choose from that met certain criteria; that 
each proposal be certifiable by the Controller and the 
Metropolitan Transportation Commission as meeting the requirements 
for 33% of the operating cost of the Muni out of the fare box 
in order to get AB 110 7 funding. Secondly, the criteria v/as 
that each of the proposals v;ould enable us to estimate, 
based upon Muni's projections of ridership and decreases of fare 
evasion, a revenue nearly equal to the $16 million tliat tlie 
Mayor's Office and the budget program indicate v/e will have to 
raise out of the fare in addition to current revenues of 
$29 million to enable us to operate at full service levels next 
year. The third criteria was that the increase, if voted upon 
and enacted, would enable us to qualify for AB 1107 funds in the 
fiscal year 1981-82. He went thorugh the Gruen Gruen + 
Associates study, in which three of the criteria remain split 
between peak and base differentials; four of tlie criteria hold 
senior fares at current level or lower; six of the proposals 
envision a change in student discounts - to return to a student 
pass enabling them to ride at less than the current nickel, and 
non-students would have to pay full fare. Proposals from Cap/ 
Trans, Supervisor Kopp (for raising the cable car fare only), 
and Mr. Shields (through the Board of Supervisors) , did not meet 
the criteria for AB 1107 funds or budget requirements. 

Commissioner John M. Sanger stated that among alternatives 
©resented, there v;ere several which lov/er fares or equivalent 
passes over the existing level, and asked i^rhat was the 
justification for this. 

Mr. Sklar reviewed the student and senior fare, explaining tlie 
ride equivalency between the adult and senior fast pass level, 
and to retain a five cent fare there should be a fast pass ratio 
that had some relationship to the 50C: and $16.00 adult fast pass. 

Commissioner Claire C. Pilcher requested explanation of the fare 
rates, and projected total revenues. 

^'^^. Sklar explained the $1.60 student pass, on the same basis 
that the student pass and the senior pass be made equal, 
related to the fact that the average student rides about 40 
times a month, getting an equivalency at the same level as 
the adults, and that if we are going to keep the passes for 
discounted people, they should be at one level and equivalent 

80-58 



a.-i.\ ;■•■:•■."■■■ 



Margo Schulter, nroposed a freeze of the fast pass at $11, or 
a nominal increase to $13 or $14; freeze of the elderly and 
handicapped fare; a base fare of 50 <= (or higher) to meet State 
fare box requirements; increasing express fares to $1; assessing 
a transfer fee and revising the City Charter to permit higher 
cable car fares; and an all out campaign to purchase fast passes 

Commissioner Claire C. Pilcher asked v/hat was the absolute 
minimum that could be charged for a fast past and still meet 
the fare box requirements (fare box requirement includes what 
we get from selling fast passes) , If there was a massive 
shift to fast passes that the revenue were reduced down to 1/3, 
we would not meet our AB 1107 requirements. 

President Peter McCrea stated that based on staff analyses, 
with a 50<: fare, $16 is the lowest we coulc go to meet AB 1107 
requirements . 

Marian Brisbane, Vice President on the Commission on Aging, was 
gratified that the Commission was opposed to an increase in 
senior fares, and felt that there should not be peak hour 
discrimination, which would be a burden on the Muni operators 
cind hold up transportation. She felt that the lowest age to 
qualify for a senior x>7as age 60. The traditional form of 
identification is a Medicare card. 

Stanley Shields spoke about his proposal, prepared by *.':. request, 
of some members of the Board of Supervisors, advocating that to 
meet the AB 1107 requirements, standard fares should be raised 
to 35<:; fast nass to $13; and the cable car fare to $1. 

President Peter McCrea said that they could not consider a cable 
care fare increase in qualifying for AB 1107. 

Mr. Richard Sklar stated that we have to bring the rate of 
collections up to the 33% level. 

Victoria Garcia felt a fare increase v/ould be hard for the 
senior citizens and the children. 

Jim Rourke objected to the student fare survey, feeling it was 
inaccurate, and objected to the Mayor's possible elimination of 
seniors' and handicappeds ' escort service, and was against a 
fare increase until the public had good service and good Muni 
ecTuipment. 

Freda Caesar, on behalf of San Franciscans Against the Fare Hike, 
All People's Coalition, Bay View-Hunter's Point Seniors, etc., etc., 
finds all fare hikes unaccepabl' and felt that big businesses 
should be taxed instead. 

Wil Manner, Sr. felt senior citizens should not pay more than 
$2 per month; students should ride for 10 <? per ride or $4.50 per 
month; regular fare should be 50 <: without a fast pass, and 
transfers should be eliminated. 

Julius Zamacona felt bus service was inadequate; they v;ere not 
running in order to obtain a fare increase, and objected to a 
fare increase. 

Gerald Chandler, of the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce, 
recommended 50 <; standard fare should be charged; senior fare 
should be raised to 10 f?; and fast passes should be $16, and that 
we are all part of a region and senior fares really should be 
raised as fares should be compatible between transit systems.

to the adult fcst pass; getting a student at a five cent 
equivalency', the $1.60 has the same relationship to the $16.00 
as the five cents has to the 5o<?. That's the basis for it. 
The pass equivalencies are related on a percentage basis to the 
cash fares for each of the categories, not on ridership. 

Mr. Bruce Bernhard of Gruen Gruen + Associates explained the 
basis for the estimates, and that data on student ridership 
is inadequate, and their data shows students ride on an 
average of 20 times a month. 

Previously, students had ten rides (a card was punched per ride) , 
and the proposed pass is for the month, with a time limit, before 
there was an unlimited time period. Students who ride will 
continue to ride and it v/ill be cheaper for them to buy the 
student fast pass for $1.60 per month than 50 <= per ride. Before, 
if a student only rode four times, the fare collected was 20<:. 
Thus, revenues V7ill increase. 

President T'cCrea said that the choice on both senior and student 
fares is a philosophical one, that the fare revenue will 
not dramatically affect the overall fare revenue package. 

Commissioner John ri. Sanger stated that this is not a minor matter 
because vie are talking about effective transfers from one type of 
rider to another, and in effect, one type of rider subsidizing 
another type of rider. If the only student fare available is the 
monthly pass, we will have a significant impact on current abuse 
of the so-called student fare by those who won't actually qualify. 
This is not included in the estimate of certifiable revenue. 

Mr. Bernhard said that the City Controller will not accept such 
estimates as an element of the certifiable increase. 9/10 ths of 
one per cent v/as added to the estimate of total revenue to 
account for the student passes. 

Commissioner Claire C. Pilcher inquired if the Board of 
Education has agreed to sell student passes. 

I!r. Sklar discussed this v/ith the Board of Education and v;e v/ill 
have to provide them with administrative funds , perhaps reducing 
our revenue to sell the passes. 

Commissioner John PI. Sanger asked if the report included 
estimates of ridership losses, assumed for each of the fare 
alternatives and v;as told that this was provided in the back up 
document. Table 5, page 9, but was not the certifiable amount. 
Commissioner Sanger further inquired if any one of the alternatives 
one through seven, was adopted, did the estimate include loss of 
ridership. 

Mr. Bernhard said that in all cases the loss among adult riders 
who do not switch to fast passes is verv high - approximately 30%, 
overall the loss is low because survey respondents indicated 
there v;ould be a strong shift to passes at any higher cash fare 
above 2 5<:, ridership is increased '>7hen people sv/itch to a pass. 
There will be a shift in the type of riders v/e have, those who 
presently ride close to the fast pass fare tend to switch to 
fast passes and increase their ridership; those vrho ride less 
now and don't find it to their benefit to sv/itch to the fast 
pass in the future dramatically decrease their ridership. We 
do not have cross tabs on income characteristics. 

The meeting was opened to the public. 



80-60 



Russell Chang felt if v/e couldn't count the cable car fares, 
we would never make AB 1107 at all and suggested creating a 
dov/ntown zone; fast passes should be $18 to $20 per month; 
limited runs $12 or $13, and the PUC should get the AB 1107 
requirements lowered; also, that bus schedules should be 
interfaced, and that students should pay regular fast pass fare. 

David Hollaway felt that a nickel v/as not enough fare for 
seniors to pay; that they should pay 15* or $5 for a senior pass, 
and that fast pass fare should not be raised to $16 unless the 
fare is raised for senior citizens. He complimented the audience 
on its courtesv. 

Joseph Freedman felt seeking AB 1107 funds was a policy decision 
and the price in making this decision is raising the fare, and to 
get the funds, payroll, business, and sales taxes could be raised. 
To eliminate fare evasion, he suggested fast passes for $11; $2.50 
for seniors, and a day pass for 50<:, and 10<: day. pass fare for 
seniors, eliminating transfers. 

Michael McGill, on behalf of SPUR, favored alternative No. 4. 
SPUR desires to see Muni impose a fare increase that would 
provide sufficient revenues for several years; and that a peak 
and off-peak fare structure is impractical; they favor a 50*? all 
day fare? fast pass from $16 to $i9; senior citizen's pass for 
$2.50, and endorse the proposed tax package. He felt that every- 
one should realize that AB 1107 funds is a transit tax that 
San Franciscans are nov; paying but they are not now eligible for 
and it is incumbent on Muni to raise the fare sufficiently to 
get that revenue to help the City in its present budget crisis. 

John G. Gardner, Second Vice President, ILWU, Local 6 Pensioners' 
Club, opposed fare increase for the seniors and handicapped, but 
not for the employees; is opposed to spending millions to repair 
cable cars; felt v/e should keep the fast pass and do away with 
transfers, and that if service was maintained - instead of 
buses bunching, etc. - everyone would benefit. 

Tom Kane wondered why the research group did not take other 
cities svstems and find v/hat's good with them and use those, i.e., 
Montreal's Metro; he felt students should pay a cheap fare only 
going to and from school, and inbetx^/een tl^ey should pay 50<:; that 
seniors deserved a break; other working people should pay more if 
it is needed; cable car fares should be increased to $i (or a 
fast pass) ; buses should be policed better; riders should pay 
for transfers. He felt that this was not a good system, buses 
here do not wait for people to transfer, and that some buses 
were only needed during rush hours and they should run on lines 
when they are most needed. 

Karen Sjogren was not in favor of any of the seven proposals 
and favored Mr. Shield's proposal; she felt alternate sources of 
taxation should be considered, citv gasoline tax, downtown parking, 
traffic tickets; and vras against raised fares during peak hours 
as buses are most unpleasant to ride, overcrowded, etc.; she 
favored raising cable car rates and separating it from the bus 
system; she favored raising student's rates and suggested an 
examination of better management in terms of bringing down the 
cost of the system - they should get expenses of operating the 
system down instead of increasing fares. 

Fred Methner felt a nickel fare for senior citizens was too low; 
that if a fare increase was borne by the business community, 
their products would go up accordingly. He endorsed the Chamber 
of Commerce's proposal. 



80-61 



Thomas Corey felt we lose money on the cable cars and that 
a round trip fare should be $1 and that buses should take 
care of the people on the route and that cable cars should 
be run for tourists only. 

Cecille Hochman felt that a 25<: rate is a reasonable rate 
for all to pay, and if anything, a loiver rate should be paid 
by the poor, and unemployed. She further felt that bus 
drivers' and ethnic partons' abusive acts towards v;omen 
(especially middle aged and elderly) should be investigated. 

J. B. Martin, Automotive Machinists' Union, felt that the riuni 
fare should be free, and to finance this it should come from the 
downtown groups, the businesses, the Chamber, etc. He favored 
the reduced rate for the elderly and handicapped (or a free fare) 
and students, 50<: for others, and $1 for the cable car. Ideally, 
he felt that public transportation should be free and that the 
business community should pick up the tab as they presently only 
pay 35% of the tax load. 

End of public hearing. 

Commissioner John F. Henning, Jr. suggested the hearing be 
continued to get more public incut. 

Commissioner John M. Sanger said he was not prepared to make a 
decision today and he was not sure more public testimony would 
be of help in making any decision and that the meeting should 
be continued to next week to determine which fare alternatives, 
if any, listed here, that we can vouch for, and that the 
meeting should be closed to the public. We have heard public 
testimony of over 60 hours and most of it does not address the 
serious question v/e face of what kind of fare increase that 
expresses the understandable opposition to a fare increase, and 
recommend that we close the public hearing and that we continue 
the meeting for a decision. I would like to give some thought 
to the alternatives that face us from the staff and those that 
are not from the staff before taking action. It is unprecedented 
to be looking at so manv alternatives at once, and we must be 
able to choose those vre are willing to approve before submission 
to the Board of Supervisors. 

Commissioner Sanger moved to close the public hearing and continue 
the meeting to Thursday, riarch 13, 19 80 at 9:00 A.M., in 
Room 2 82, City Hall, San Francisco, California. Commissioner 
Flynn seconded the motion and it was unanimously adopted. 

President Peter PlcCrea said that there v/ill not be any additional 
public testimony at that time; it vjill be oublicly noticed in 
the normal fashion.

Conunissioners H. VJelton Flynn, John F. Henning, Jr. 

Coimissioner Claire C. Pilcher arrived at 9:05 A.M. 

The Minutes of the Public Hearing meeting of March 7, 19 80 were 
approved '. 

A tape of the meeting is on file in the office of the Secretary 
of the Public Utilities Commission. 

SPECIAL ORDER OF BUSINESS — TO CONSIDER 
ADOPTION OF A REVISED SCHEDULE OF RATES, 
FARES AND CHARGES TO BE CHARGED BY THE 
MUNICIPAL RAILWAY. (CONTINUED FROM MEETING 
OF MARCH 7, 19 80.) 

President Peter McCrea stated that the Board of Supervisors has 
asked the Commissioners to submit a number of alternatives, and 
that the Chairman of the Finance Committee asked that a number 
of the proposals meet the AB 1107 funding requirements, and that 
the proposal of Supervisor Walker be sent to the Board, as well 
as an analysis bjr, „ Gruen Gruen + Associates of the AB 1107 
implications, for the last fsical quarter of year 1979-80 and the 
ensuing fiscal years, 19 80-81, and 1981-82. He also read a 
letter from Supervisor Renne. 

Supervisor Walker's proposal, in its broadest form, raises the 
ac jlt fare from 25<: to 35<:? raises, the fast pass from $11 to $14; 
raises the senior and student fares from five cents to lO*?; which 
will not meet AB 1107 requirements on its own, but in conjunction 
with an anticipated increase in the cable car fare from 25<: to 
$1.00, may meet the AB 1107 requirements. Recognizing this. 
Supervisor Walker v/ould be willing to entertain a number of 
conditions on the fare package that v/ould provide an automatic 
fare increase to 50<: and a $16 fast pass, under the possibility 
that it would not generate enough AB 1107 funds or that the cable 
car fare did not increase. 

President Peter McCrea went through the Public Utilities 
Commission Resolution, making appropriate changes. A finalized 
Resolution will be prepared by the District Attorney's Office. 

President Peter McCrea further explained that Supervisor Walker's 
proposal would have a resolution proposing a fare increase to 50 C 
and $16, if the Charter amendment allowing the cable car fares be 
increased to $1.00 does not pass, or even if it does pass, since 
the revenue generation is on the low side of AB 1107, if it can 
be demonstrated that AB 1107 funding would not be met. There is 
a recognition that this would require a second fare increase to 
take place if the cable car fare is not raised, and even if the 
cable car fares are raised, it might require a fare increase. 
MTC will be present at the Supervisors hearing. The key 
question is, does her proposal generate sufficient revenue in 
the next calendar quarter or the last quarter of this fiscal year 
to meet AB 1107 funding and allow us to get last year's MTC 
reserve of AB 1107 funding. Mr. Bruce Bernhard of Gruen Gruen + 
Associates, Mr. Rose, and probably the Controller and MTC will 
Jresolve this; . The Finance Committee's letter specifically 
requested that Supervisor Walker's cption . No. 2 be considered. 

Commissioner Pilcher pointed out that in view of the fact that 
the cable cars are going to be shut down for at least two years, 
we cannot count on the revenue from the $1.00 cable car fare for 
several years in our funding. 

80-69 



Commissioner Sanger suggested that the rates for 19 81-82 
should be addressed by letter to the Board. 

President McCrea will send a letter to the Board of Supervisors 
summarizing everything that is in the resolution and, to the 
extent that it does not include things that we had previously 
sent to the Board, we will explain why those items have not been 
included in the resolution. 

It was brought up that when Special Service Routes fares are 
to be increased, this is a matter that will have to go to the 
Board of Supervisors. 

Commissioner Flynn moved, and Commissioner Pilcher seconded 
that the Candlestick Park Service fares should be: a fast pass; 
a round trip fare calculated at 4x the highest adult fare, or 
available with a transfer, or a token, plus 3x the highest cash 
fare. 

Vote: Ayes - MCcrea, Flynn, Pilcher 

Noes ~ Sanger, Henning 

Commissioner Sanger moved that there shall be one discount cash 
fare for seniors, students, handicapped and the blind, and 
Commissioner Flynn moved that we substitute a valid discount 
pass or 50<: per round trip, seconded by Sanger. 

Vote: Ayes - McCrea, Sanger, Flynn, Henning, 
Pilcher 

Commissioner Sanger moved and President McCrea seconded the 
motion that it be understood that in the case of every fare 
schedule and fare alternative that we have got, that the Charter 
rates shall be the same under all alternatives, and the statement 
with regard to babies, special services shall be the same under 
all alternatives as previously specified; that the token shall in 
all cases be equal to the highest adult fare adopted; that the 
day pass shall be offered when available and shall be at twice 
the highest adult fare; that annual passes will be offered when 
available and will be offered at a discount of 6% or of a multiple 
of 12 times the monthly pass, less 6%, rounded even; and that 
in all of these cases the seniors, handicapped, blind, and students 
should pay the same fare under all alternatives, and that the 
Candlestick Park Service fare be in all cases a round trip fare. 

Vote: Ayes - McCrea, Sanger, Flynn, Henning, 
Pilcher 

Commissioner Pilcher moved and Commissioner Sanger seconded that 
Charter Rates for Streetcar No. 1, Cable Cars, at $100 per hour 
and 3 hour minimum, should also include the light rail vehicles 
(LRVs) and that this be moved to Schedule B . 

Vote: Ayes - McCrea, Sanger, Flynn, Henning, 
Pilcher 

Commissioner Sanger moved, seconded by President McCrea, that 
there be one single discount cash fare for seniors, students, 
the .ndicapped and the blind. He felt that if we vary the 
discount fares, we are doubling the number of options being sent 
to the Board and that in terms of the operation of the Municipal 
Railway we should consider the ability of the drivers to deal 
with different fares and that we should simplify and have only 
one type of cash discount fare. 

Vote: Ayes - McCrea, Sanger, Flynn, Henning 

Noes - Pilcher 

Commissioner Pilcher moved and Commissioner Henning seconded that 
Charter Rates for Streetcar No. 1 be $75 per hour. 

Vote: Ayes - Henning, Pilcher 

Noes - McCrea, Sanger, Flynn 



Commissioner Pilcher moved, seconded by Commissioner Sanger, 
that we make no reduction in any fare or pass level. 

Vote: Ayes - McCrea, Sanger, Flynn, Henning, 
Pilcher 

President McCrea said he would write a letter explaining why 
the proposed $1.60 fares were not included in any of the 
proposed fare schedules, and that as far as he is concerned 
these were staff proposals and were never advertised as being 
more than that - staff proposals.

Commissioner Pilcher moved and Commissioner 
Sanger seconded the motion that the student cash 
fare be increased to 10 <? and that the student 
pass be increased to $4.00. 

Vote: Ayes - McCrea, Seinger, Flynn, Henning, 
Pilcher 

President McCrea said that there was a desire 
by the Board of Supervisors that there be an 
option that would provide a longer term funding 
through the mechanism of a higher fast pass, 
and he proposed that an option the same as 
Option 4 be included, raising the fast pass to 
$17.50. 

Commissioner Pilcher moved and President McCrea 
seconded the above proposal. 

Vote: Ayes - McCrea, Pilcher, Henning 



No«s - Sanger, Flynn 

Commissioner Sanger stated that if there was any 
tolerability in a 50<: flat fare, the benefits 
should be derived to the greatest extent possible 
by those who are regular riders and choose to 
buy a fast pass, and it is critical that the 
fast pass price be low enough to alleviate the 
burden riders will bear for simple shopping trips , 
recreation, etc. 

Commissioner proposed a resolution to address 
the request of the Finance Committee with respect 
to the proposal of Supervisor Walker and that 
they adopt a fare schedule that provides : a 
35<J: adult cash fare, a $14 monthly fast pass; 
10 <: discount cash fare for seniors, hendicapped, 
and students; a $2.50 senior and handicapped and 
blind fast pass; and a $4 student fast pass. 
This would (supposedly) meet AB 1107 requirements 
from April through June, 1980, and that the 
cash fare for travel on any cable car shall be 
$1.00, effective July 1, 1980 or the earliest 
date permitted by law if there is some delay in 
the certification of the Charter amendment. If 
the Charter is amended prior to July 1, 19 80, in 
accordance with the measure put on the ballot 
by the Board of Supervisors, the second Resolved 
would provide that if the Charter is not amended 
by July 1, 19 80, then effective that date the 
35<: adult fare would automatically go to 50%, 
and the fast pass would go to $16. The third 
condition expressed in the Resolve clause is 
that even if the Charter is amended and the 
$1.00 cable care fare is collected July 1, 19 80, 
or whatever the earliest date is, then, based 
on the determination made by the Commission, 
on or prior to August 15, 1980, if the projected 
fare revenues for the next fiscal year will not 
be greater to or equal, to 33% of the budgeted 
operating expenditures as finally approved in 



80-72 



the adopted budget for that fiscal year, then 
there would be an automatic increase again to 
the Option 4 fare schedule, effective 
Septeml.er 1, 1980, or, if at any si±:sequent 
time in the fiscal year or the next fiscal year, 
or the Controller determines that the fare 
revenues would not be equal to or greater than 
33% of the approved Board operating expenditures, 
then the fare would automatically increase to 
50 <: and $16.00 for adults. This expresses the 
desire of Supervisor Walker and other members 
of the Board of Supervisors to have a step 
increase which allows the City to take advantage 
of potential additional revenues generated by 
the Charter amendment. Supervisor Walker 
understands and accepts that if there is any 
danger of missing AB 1107 eligibility, there 
would be an automatic increase, and that would 
have been approved by this Commission. He 
suggested that the Commission not make this 
determination; that they rely on the determination 
of the Controller who is independent of the 
Commission and the Board of Supervisors. Mr. Dow 
stated that the Commission is the body that 
proposes fares and any determination that will 
trigger a fare change must be made by this body. 

Commissioner Sanger proposed that the Commission 
adopt a separate resolution that, if the Board 
were to approve or not disapprove a 35<: and 
$14.00 fare, then effective April 1, 1980 the 
Commission determines that transfers would be 
limited to one use in order to assure that 
there is no danger of missing AB 1107 funds 
for April, May, and June of this year, and 
those were the conditions he informed Supervisor 
Walker that he was willing to introduce her 
proposal. Commissioner Sanger moved that the 
Commission adopt this proposal as one alternative 
to go to the Board of Supervisors. A separate 
resolution could be adopted today by this 
Commission that would state that if the fare 
structure was adopted by the Board, that the 
Commission has already determined that effective 
April 1, 19 80 the transfer policy would go into 
effect. 

President McCrea stated that Supervisor Walker's 
proposal is so marginal and as it is impossible 
to determine whether it is possible to meet all 
these criteria this fiscal year, to ensure that 
we get AB 1107 funds that the transfer limitation 
is necessary. 

Commissioner Sanger stated that the Budget 
Analyst believes that this year's 1107 funding 
we would qualify for as we would obtain 33% of 
our expenditures April through June. For the 
next fiscal year, there is no question that we 
would have to have the cable car fare increase 
and that we must have something to guarantee 
next year's AB 1107 money. 

Commissioner Flynn spoke in opposition to this 
proposal. He did not feel the Board would 
approve a $1.00 cable car fare. He felt that 
with all these conditions we really get a great 
focus on the general public - imposing on them 
something, which at a later date was hidden in 
in a package, because the things which we had 



80-73 



anticipated or had been led to believe could take 
place, now we have to raise their fare some place 
down the line by an automatic trigger of something 
which did not happen. He was opposed to any 
conditional 'thing' even if it meets approval at 
this time, because we can't project what the 
electorate would do and he would not like to be 
faced with the problem of making it look like 
the cab le cars now are a 'bad animal' because 
it didn't pass. He was opposed to any 
resolution with all of these conditions in it. 

Commissioner Pilcher if we do this we are locking 
ourselves into just one of our alternatives. 

Commissioner Sanger commented that the one 
advantage of this is that it does present to the 
electorate when they vote on the Charter amendment 
the clear issue that may, if they approve it, 
substitute for a fare increase on the rest of our 
system. 

Commissioner Flynn said that if the electorate 
does pass it and we shut down the cable cars for 
an estimated 20 to 35 months, then where do we 
get the dollar even if it passes. He thought 
those conditions were so prevailing that it 
should not be con idered. He felt the situation 
was to kind of force the public to vote for 
the dollar because they could enjoy lower fares, 
but, when this is passed and we shut the system 
down, how do we qualify for this great chunk of 
dollars which we will not get. 

Mr. Dow stated that if the Commission sent this 
proposal to the Board they were asking the Board 
to approve a contingent fare increase in August, 
that is approving a fare increase four months in 
advance upon a condition, and the condition which 
requires the exercise of considerable judgment. 
The other condition is it either passes or it 
doesn't, so you know where you stand. He said 
he would like to review this. 

Commissioner Sanger suggested that by Monday, 
March 17, 1980 Mr. Dow will be able to advise 
the Board whether it is legal or not. 

President McCrea called the question. 

Vote: Ayes - McCrea, Sanger, Henning 

Noes - Flynn, Pilcher 

President McCrea asked if there were any other 
alternatives that the Commission felt should be 
sent to the Board. There are six proposals 
to be sent to the Board, including Supervisor 
Walker's. 

President McCrea will write a letter to the Board prioritizing 
the options. 

Commissioner Sanger requested that we furnish the Board of 
Supervisors with copies of the Minutes by thier meeting on 
Monday, March 17, 19 80, basically a summary of the votes taken 
on the different alternatives.

Water Department, presented the proposed budget for the Water

effective August 1, 19 80, to produce an additional $3.3 million. 

President McCrea requested a report as to what added costs 
attributed to the need for a water rate increase and what items

program at the level previously approved by the Commission.

again on the projection screen. 

Mr. George Duarte, Deputy General Manager, Engineering and

property owners such as Woolworth's and the Emporium to 
keep their entrances to the BART/Muni stations clean.

of the Public Utilities Commission. 



PUBLIC HEARING 

To consider budget proposals for fiscal year 19 80-81 for the 
departments and bureaus under the Public Utilities Commission 
(continued from meeting of April 2, 1980). 

No action was taken. 

Mr. George Duarte, Deputy General Manager, Engineering and 
Maintenance, presented his budget for engineering. 

President McCrea requested a revised budget totaling no more 
than $500,000 for salaries. 

Mr. Frank Baggetta, Superintendent of Maintenance, presented 
the Equipment Maintenance budget ^^7hich indicated phasing in 
light rail vehicle (LRV) maintenance and phasing out 
maintenance of PCC streetcars. Currently there are 129 
positions in the PCC maintenance section. The proposed 
budget for 19 80-81 reduces that number to an equivalency of 
41 positions for the year. 

Mr. Norman Rolfe of San Francisco Tomorrow, commented that the 
stated goal of maintaining 90% of the LRV, streetcar and trolley 
fleets in working condition means meeting 100% of the service 
demand. He suggested saving diesel fuel by using electric 
trolleys for owl service and LRV ovtIs operating on the surface 
tracks on Market Street. 

President McCrea directed that staff research the possibility 
of using electric vehicles for owl service. 

Mr. Maurice Klebolt, President of CAP/Trans, asked if the 

cable car reconstruction program would cause the system to 

be shut down during the 1980-81 budget year. Mr. Sklar answered, 

"No." 

Mr. Rodney Bartholomew, Deputy General Manager, Operations, 
described the proposed reorganization of his department which 
is designed to provide increased supervision and better 
serv ice on the lines. 

President McCrea expressed concern abcat the concept of using 
two station agents per shift £.nd requested a review of the 
station manning requirements . 

Mr. Klebolt commented that the SFMRIC lease payments of 
$4.3 million should be added to the proposed budget, making 
a total budget of over $132, million- He expressed concern 
as to who prepared the budget and the cost of such work. 



80-86 



Mr. Leo Jed, Assistant General Manager, Bureau of Financial 
Management, said that the firm of Arthur Andersen was already on 
board to develop an accounting system. They assisted in 
preparing the budget at a cost of approximately $40,000. 

Commissioner Flynn asked where the money was coming from to pay 
for the budget work. Mr. Jed answered that it was part of the 
conversion effort of loading the budgets onto the new accounting 
system for next year. Commissioner Flynn said that the Commission 
had not passed a resolution modifying the scope of work to provide 
for preparation of the budget. Mr. Jed agreed that he had stretcht 
the definition of conversion to incorporate assisting in developin< 
the budget so that it can be loaded onto the nev7 accounts 
structure. 

Commissioner Flynn asked if the Controller returned the original 
modification because of an attempt to pay for the budget. Mr. Jed 
replied that no attempt has been made to pay for the budget. He 
added that it will be paid out of the original engagement, which 
was to design, implement and install TIMS. 

President McCrea asked if there had been an invoice from Arthur 
Andersen that the Controller refused to pay. Mr. Sklar replied 
that Arthur Andersen recently submitted an invoice for work 
completed last July relative to the reorganization. Someone in 
the Controller's office misconstrued this invoice as being for the 
budget work currently going on and returned the invoice. 

Mr. Harold Guetersloh explained that the Commission approved two 
modifications to this contract; however, the accounting department 
didn't forward them to the Controller for certification until the 
request for payment was made. The Controller then questioned 
whether the work had been performed without proper authorization. 

Regarding the elasticity of stretching the scope of work in order 
to pay for the budget. Commissioner Flynn said that staff should 
seek approval from the Commission. Mr. Jed agreed. 

r-lr. Cornell Gatewood, President, Transport Workers' Union, 
expressed concern about funds for additional operator facilities. 
Mr. Sklar said that those funds are included in the proposed budge 

Mr. Klebolt inquired about the level of service on the street if 
this budget is not approved by the Board of Supervisors. 

Commissioner Henning was excused at 5:15 P.M. 

Mr. Leo Jed presented the proposed budget for his bureau. 

Mr. Fred Perry suggested that Muni and AC Transit work together 
to obtain grant funds. 

Mr. Klebolt commented that the budget proposes spending more tax 
dollars to enlarge staff to chase more tax dollars. 

Ms. Nancy Keane, Assistant General Manager, Administration, 
presented the proposed budget for her bureau. She stated that 
security had been eliminated. 

Mr. Samuel Walker, Secretary-Treasurer of the Transport 
Workers' Union, expressed concern about the possible use of 
transit police for facilities security. He also inquired as 
to what effect eliminating physical examinations would have 
on existing rules for the operators. 

Mr. Gatewood spoke in support of the employees referral program

Mr. Peter Straus, acting Director of Planning, presented an 
outline of the transit related projects under\\7ay by various 
agencies along The Embarcadero. Mr. Sklar proposed that all 
agencies join together to undertake one alternatives analysis 
and one environmental review covering all projects. Commissioner 
Sanger requested that this matter be calendared for the next 
meeting. 



Item No. 19 — Discussion of Minority Business Enterprise 
quarterly report 

Mr. George Newkirk, MBE, Contract Compliance Officer, stated 
that a problem still exists with electrical contracts and those 
contracts without sub-contractors or where the department 
supplies materials. He said the possibility of joint venturing 
is being explored. Commissioner Sanger commented that joint 
venturing is the least desirable approach. 



80-102 



■ An 



President flcCrea said that no progress is being made in 
electrical contracts. The numbers look good because some firms 
are carrying the load. He suggested that electrical work be 
packaged into large contracts ao as to attract bidders from 
outside the area who would sub-contract with smaller local 
firms. Mr. Newkirk said that minority electrical firms don't 
have the necessary equipment 

Commissioner Flynn said that the report shows $1.2 million 
going to minority firms from among 44 contracts totaling 
$40 million. These numbers indicate only 4% minority par- 
ticipation which is a poor showing, Mr. Sklar pointed out that 
the 4% figure covers last year. This year minority partici- 
pation has increased to 35%, Mr, Newkirk added that 20% of 
the total contract work is going to minority firms. President 
McCrea requested that the report fomnat be changed to present a 
clearer picture. 



Resolution Wo. 80-0179 — Appoint law firm of Seyfarth, Shaw, 
Fairweather & Geraldson as special counsel. 

Responding to a question by Commissioner Flynn, Mr. Sklar stated 
that the estimated cost of this agreement for special legal 
counsel is $3,000 for 30 hours work which will be paid by the 
City Attorney's Office. 

Thereupon the meeting adjourned: 3:15 P.M.

Resolution No. 80-0180 — Authorizing application for Urban 
Initiatives planning funds for a study to transform Market 
Street into a transit/commercial street. 

Mr. Glenn Erickson of the City Planning staff presented the 
proposal of closing Market Street to automobiles from Eighth 
Street to Steuart Street. He narrated a movie showing transit/ 
commercial streets in various cities. 

Mr. Carl Natvig of the Municipal Railway planning staff stated 
that when Muni Metro is fully operating and the 5-Year Plan is 
implemented, 23% of all Muni vehicles will be on Market Street 
carrying 76,600 passengers per day. Another 76,000 passengers 
will be riding other portions of these lines and will therefore 
be affected by the congestion on Market Street. 

Mr. Erickson explained that the Urban Initiatives grant for 
from UMTA would be for $125,000 with the local match of $25,000 
from SB 620. The funds would be used to hire a coordinator 
and a consultant to develop plans for traffic, transit, 
enforcement, physical design, and impact assessment, and to 
conduct public outreach. 

Mr. Jeffrey Lee, Director of Public Works, said that the most 
important factor affecting this project is whether the tracks 
will remain on Market Street. 

Ms. Holly Marcelino, representing San Francisco Bicycle 
Coalition and Bay Area Bicycle Action Council, endorsed the 
plans as proposed for Market and Stockton Streets which allow 
cyclists. She requested that consideration be given to safety 
for cyclists. 

Mr. Norman Rolfe, representing San Francisco Tomorrow, supported 
the closing of Market Street to automobiles as soon as 
possible with a minimum of physical changes. 

Mr. Joe Hughes, representing San Franciscans for Public Power, 
urged the Commission to act to close Market Street using the 
simplest and least expensive method. 

Mr. Maurice Klebolt, President, Citizens Advisory Panel, Board 
of Supervisors, spoke in favor of closing Market Street and 
requested that the retention of the surface rails on Market 
Street be included in the consultant's scope of work. 

Mr. Fred Perry endorsed the plan but questioned the hiring of 
a consultant. 

An unidentified speaker expressed concern about alternative 
routes for automobiles. 

An unidentified speaker supported retaining the tracks on 
Market Street. 

Mr. Bernard Averbuch, representing the Market Street 
Development Project, Inc., said that he didn't have adequate 
information to comment at this time. His members would be 
meeting shortly to discuss this proposal. 

Mr. Erickson said that the study would conduct an extensive 
outreach program. 



Recessed: ':50 P.M. 

Reconvened: 4:00 P.M. 

80-106 



President McCrea suggested directing staff to pursue development 
of a schedule and work plan using January, 19 81 as the target 
date for closing Market Street. Commissioner Sanger so moved, 
seconded by President McCrea. Commissioner Scott voted "No." 
The motion failed. 

Following adoption of Resolution No. 80-0181, the Commission 
reconsidered the Market Street resolution. 

Commissioner Sanger moved the resolution with the modification 
that the study area be from Van Ness Avenue to The Embarcadero 
and that a revised scope of work to be undertaken by the 
consultant ]e presented to the Commission by May 13, 1980. 
Commissioner Scott seconded. Resolution No. 80-0180 was 
adopted . 

The Planning Commission adopted a resolution in support of the 
Public Utilities Commission action. 



Resolution No. 80-0181 — Endorsing proposal for transit 
preferential treatment of a portion of Stockton Street. 

Mr. Erickson presented the proposals that were recCBnosnded by the 
Chinatown Core Area Circulation Study. The study's citizens 
advisory committee supported alternative "C." The Transportation 
Policy Group supported alternative "E," a one-way southbound 
transit lane and a transit/ CQBBBerclal lane northbound from 
Clay Street to Broadway. 

Ms. Sue Lee, representing Chinatown TRIP and Neighborhood 
Planning Resource Center, expressed concern that plan "E" would 
cause the merchants to feel threatened and then would kill the 
plan which would mean that there would be no improvement. She 
supported implementing alternative "C." 

Ms. Agnes Chan, Vice Chair of the Tudor committee, said that 
the plan that was approved had no mid-block bus platforms 
northbound. 

Commissioner Sanger moved and Commissioner Scott seconded

PUBLIC HEARING - Municipal Railway Fares. 

President McCrea stated that during the Muni fare hearings 
before the Board of Supervisors in March, the Board passed a 
motion requesting the Public Utilities Commission to submit 
the then existing fare schedule for consideration by the 
Board of Supervisors by June 5, 1980, along with any other fare 
schedules the Commission deemed appropriate. This public 
hearing is being held in response to the Board of Supervisors' 
request. 

Mr. Peter Finnegan, Board of Governors of the San Francisco 
Community College District, said that the District serves a 
student population of 05,000 students, 40?. of whom use Muni. 
38% have an income of under $5,000, includd.ng the income of 
spouses. Raising the fare to 50 <? lias created an economic 
impediment for many students. He suggested including Community 
College students in the same category as high school students 
thereby allov.dng them to pay a five cent fare. The District 
would identify low income, full time students. 

President McCrea suggested that tlio Community College District 
subsidize a lov/cr faro from its budget.

budget. 

Mr. Sal Rossclli, student i jpresentativc to the Comnui; Ity 
College Board, stated that the mean age of students is 2 8 years 
old. Most are independent c? outside support, except for 
Federal and State financial aid programs. He urged adoption

about implementing the day pass. I

contract with Arthur Andersen & Co. 

Commissioner Kenning asked if there v;as a legal problem in 
spending MTC or UMTA funds for item nujnber 13 in tiie work 
program (Budget Input). Mr. Jed replied, "No." 

Commissioner Flynn asked how much of the $737,000 contract to 
date had been paid to the Arthur /uidersen & Co. Mr. Jed 
replied that approximately $670,000 to $690,000 has been 
invoiced and paid. Commissioner Flynn asked if the residual 
amount would be used to accommodate this v;ork or other v;ork 
not yet completed. Mr. Jed said the residual amount v;ould be 
used for tliis work. Commissioner Flynn asked if the UMTA/TDA 
funds for this modification are additional funds or \vill tliis 
dilute the TDA funds already available. Mr. Jed said that 
some of the money is already in-house in a TDA grant 
specifically for this purpose and there is an outstanding 
request on which we expect UMTA to act any day for the TIMS 
project. 

Commissioner Flynn requested the resolutions and the scope of 
the work adopted by tliis Commission in June and November, 19 79 
modifying this contract. He asked if payment had been made, for' 
the budget work out of the $737,000. Mr". Jed replied that the 
budget work for design and beginning implementation part of 
tlie budget module of the accoimting system has been paid. 

Commissioner Flynn questioned the clause in tlie resolution 
that states that full encumbrance accounting was notpreviously 
included in this contract. Mr. Jed replied that a decision 
had been made previously to rely on the Controller's records. 

In response to an inquiry regarding a proposed rate adjustment 
for the cost of the work, Mr. Jed stated tliat Muni and the 
Data Processing Center had been given responsibility for 
portions of the work that was to interface v/ith t]\a contractor's 
services. The staff did not develop their part. The work 
tluTt was done was not compatil)le and this moant that tlie 
contractor had to redcsicin I'art of tlio system.

Resolution No. 80-0231 -- Approving implementing Muni Metro, 
Phase IIA on June 11, 19 80. 

Mr. Farrel Schell, Program Director, Muni Metro Task Force, 
reported that the system is ready. Mr. Lee Washburn, Manager, 
System Safety, concurred. 

Ray A. Landi , Chief, Bureau of Administration, San Francisco 
Fire Department, said that the only concerns of the Chief are 
the arrival of a permit from the FCC for radio communications 
and assurance that a dedicated telephone line will be installed 
by the telephone company within 30 days. 

Mr. Sklar described the proposed traffic plan for West Portal 
Avenue and Ulloa Street using a drawing of the intersection. He 
said that this plan had been presented to the community on 
May 30, 19 80. initially, there will be five traffic control 
people stationed at this intersection to regulate traffic and 
assist passengers. 

Several members of the pxiblic commented on the traffic plan, 
particularly the banning of left turns from Lenox Way and West 
Portal Avenue. 

Mr. Sklar described Phase 2B, v;hich is proposed for operation 
in September, 19 80. This would be through service on the K 
line from Balboa Park to Embarcadero Station with shuttle 
service on the L and M lines. 

In answer to the question of why the K line was chosen for LRV 
service rather than the L line, Mr. Peter Straus, Acting 
Director of Planning, said that the overhead wire work is not 
completed on the L line. 



80-126 



Mr. Joseph Balanesl requested that the L line be scheduled 
for LRV through service prior to the J line. Several speakers 
from the community concurred. He suggested that in the next 
step of LRV service that the L line run as a through service 
during the off peak period. 

Commissioner Scott moved to implement Muni Metro, Phase IIA, 
on June 11, 19 80 for a 60 day trial period. Commissioner 
Henning seconded the motion. The motion was unanimously 
adopted .

REPORT OF THE GENERAL MANAGER 

Mr. Richard Sklar reported that simulated K-Muni Metro service 
operated last Sunday. Trips from West Portal Station to 
Embarcadero Station averaged 12 to 14 minutes. Revenue 
passenger service will begin Wednesday, June 11, 1980. 



80-132 



Mr. Sklar introduced, off calendar, a request by the City 
Attorney's Office for ratification of the Southern Pacific 
agreement as minor changes were made subsequent to the 
Commission's approval on May 27, 1980. Resolution No. 80-0250 
was adopted at the end of the meeting ratifying the agreement 
as amended . 



INTRODUCTION OF NEW BUSINESS BY COMMISSIONERS 

Commissioner Scott requested that staff report at the 
next meeting on the status of the advisory committee on 
handicapped matters. 



Resolution No. 80-0242 — Approving lease forms and authorizing 
readvertisement for bids. 

Commissioner Scott suggested adding a form to obtain more 
financial data on prospective lessees. 



Resolution No. 80-024 3 — Extending contract with Crocker 
National Bank for six months, through December 31, 1980. 

In response to questions from Commissioner Scott, Mr. Eugene 
Kelleher, General Manager and Chief Engineer, San Francisco 
Water Department, said that Crocker National Bank has been 
providing "lockbox" services for water bill payments for the 
last 15 months. The bank informed the department that they 
intended to raise their rates approximately 70% in January, 
1981. The department is exploring performing this function 
in-house at a cost less than the new rates proposed by the 
bank. As soon as the analysis is completed it will be 
presented to the Commission. 



Item No. 12 -- Discussion of proposed extension of the Golden 
Gate National Recreation Area to include watershed property. 
(Continued from May 27, 19 80.) 

Commissioner Sanger questioned the language in the bill which 
reads as follows: "The Secretary is authorized to seek 
appropriate agreements needed to establish a trail within this 
property and connecting with a suitable beach unit under the 
jurisdiction of the Secretary." 

Mr. Sklar said that there has been a number of requests over the 
years to establish a trail to the shoreline. However, any 
trail would require approval of all four parties to the 
scenic easement. 

Commissioner Sanger asked Mr. Kelleher what his concerns were 
about this proposal. Mr. Kelleher replied that if this is 
only to change the administration, he has no problem with the 
proposal. If we are getting into a position where there will 
be pressure to open up the entire watershed to recreation, then 
he said he would be concerned. There may be some advantage 
in the future for the 4,000 acre (recreational easement) area 
to be under the federal government. Possibly, we could obtain 
funding for a filtration plant to allow recreation. He felt 
that recreation in the scenic easement would be a mistake due 
to uncontrolled activities, the possibility of fire, and the 
runoff would create turbidity. 

80-133 



Commissioner Sanger stated that he understood that if the land 
remains in City ownership and is incorporated into the GGNRA 
that it is legal for the federal government to expend funds 
for recreational purposes or to protect the area. 

Ms. Amy Meyer, Co-Chair for People for the GGNRA, read from 
the Congressional Record the following: "***nothing in this 
act be construed in any way so as to change or limit the right 
of the City and County of San Francisco's Water Department to 
operate and protect its watershed lands." 

Ms. Virginia Fusco, of the Marina Civic Improvement and 
Property Owners Association, spoke in opposition to including 
watershed land into the GGNRA due to possible erosion of the 
land and contamination of the water supply. 

Commissioner Sanger suggested communicating to the Board of 
Supervisors that HR 3 does not directly pose any threat to 
the City's interest in the watershed lands; and advise them 
that it would probably augment or accelerate the pressure 
for recreational use of the lands under the recreational 
easementj also it offers the opportunity to deal with some of 
the adverse effects of the financial impacts of recreational 
use. 

Commissioner Henning moved and Commissioner Flynn seconded a 
motion to send the aforementioned letter, over the signature 
of the General Manager. The motion was adopted. 



Commissioner Scott was excused at 3:15 P.M. 



Resolution No. 80-0245 — Authorizing rerouting of line 
35-Eureka. 

Mr. Gimnicher, who is blind, said he would rather have the bus 
stop remain at 2 3rd and Vermont Street than moved as staff 
has proposed. He also requested that the bus drive into the 
parking lot and stop at the door of General Hospital for the 
benefit of handicapped persons. He suggested that a bell 
system be installed. Commissioner Sanger directed staff to 
pursue this with the Department of Public Works. 



Item No. 19 — Recommending to San Francisco Municipal 
Railway Improvement Corporation that they approve contracting 
for services. (Continued from meetings of May 13, 19 80 and 
May 27, 1980.) 

Commissioner Sanger directed that this matter be continued 
to the next meeting pending receipt of additional 
information. 

Mr. Leo Jed, Assistant General Manager, Bureau of Financial 
Management, stated that no grant work will be done and no 
payment requests signed regarding the Corporation. He said 
he would abstain from any communication with the Corporation.

REPORT OF THE GENERAL 'lANAGER 

Mr. Sklar reported that a request for a hearing on rerouting 
line 26-Valencia in Phase IB of the 5-Year Plan had been 
received from Supervisor Carol Ruth Silver. 



Mr. Sklar reported that the Board of Supervisors approved jitney 
service from Southern Pacific Station to Second and Market 
Streets at its meeting on June 23, 19 80. 



INTRODUCTION OF NEW BUSINESS BY COMf^ilSSIONERS 

Commissioner Sanger commented on the quality of signs used in 
Muni Metro stations. Mr. Sklar replied that the signs are 
temporary until the electronic destination and route signs are 
operating and a contract for additional signs can be let. 



Commissioner Scott said that he received a letter from Supervisor 
Nancy Walker requesting information on the Municipal Railway. 
Commissioner Scott requested that the information be supplied. 



Commissioner Scott inquired about the status of the proposal to 
modify contract- bidding procedures through changes in the Charter 
and various City ordinances. Mr. Oral L. Moore replied that it 
would be submitted to the Commission at the next meeting. 



Commissioner Soctt inquired about the status of obtaining poles 
for M-line overhead wire replacement from a supplier that has 
been on strike. Mr. Moore said he would investigate and report 
at the next meeting. 



Public Hearing — Resolution No. 80-0251 — Hetch Hetchy Rates. 

Mr. Robert Lowe ry, attorney for United Airlines, protested the 
proposed rates because they are based upon prevailing rates 
rather than on Hetch Hetchy 's cost of production. He requested 
access to the data upon which the rates are based. 

Mr. Sklar stated that the City Attorney's office and staff 
have been meeting with Mr. Lowery's law firm on the proposed 
rates. 

End of public hearing. 



Resolution No. 80-0253 — Awarding Hetch Hetchy Contract No. 574 
to the second low bidder, Kingston Contracting, Inc. 

(This matter was the subject of an executive session with the 
Utilities General Counsel prior to this meeting.) 

Mr. McMorris M. Dow, Utilities General Counsel, stated that 
Kingston Contracting, Inc. had protested award of this contract 
to the lowest bidder, Scott-Buttner Corp. Mr. Dow advised that 
the second point made in the letter of protest regarding failure 
to complete page 9A was a valid ground for protest and that the 
Commission could reject the low bid as nonresponsive for that 

reason.

Conmiissioner Sanger said that contractors should be made aware 
that as a matter of policy bids that do not contain the required 
material with respect to MBE compliance are not going to be

City Attorney draft a letter to the State Attorney General 
regarding possible antitrust violations in bidding on certain 
construction contracts .

Keepers. 

Commissioner Henning stated that previously watershed keepers 
had requested portable two-way radios for personal safety. 

Mr. Robert Fritcher of the Bureau of Administration reported 
that the Safety Officer is scheduled to meet with the watershed 
keepers on the matter of carrying guns.

measures as alternatives to the carrying of firearms, such as

matter was continued to the next meeting .

reconstruction . 

Commissioner Scott expressed concern about removing streetcar 
tracks. He said that the parking lot on Phelan Avenue, which is 
owned by the Water Department, could possibly be used to store 
light rail vehicles. 

Mr. Norman Rolfe, of San Francisco Tomorrow, stated that 
removing track and wires before Muni Metro is in complete 
operation is premature. 

This matter was continued. 



REPORT OF GENERAL MANAGER - Continued 

Commissioner Sanger requested that a letter be sent to 
Supervisor Carol Ruth Silver stating a willingness to meet 
informally with interested parties regarding rerouting line 
26-Valencia. However, it is the Commission's policy not to

REPORT OF THE GENERAL MANAGER 

Mr. Sklar announced that Mr. Virgil Caselli of Ghiradelli 
Square and the Cable Car Committee arranged for the City to 
receive as a donation four California Street type cable cars 
from Knotts ' Berry Farms . 



Item No. 7 — Discussion of jitney service to Fisherman's 
Wharf. 

Mr. Peter Straus, Acting Director of Planning, stated that 
staff had difficulty in obtaining information on this proposal 
for jitney service. He identified the following issues to be 
considered: 1) Is there a public need; 2) Will Muni vehicles 
be delayed; 3) Costs of services versus revenues received. 
He pointed out that under the new fare structure if service is 
profitable for jitneys. Muni probably makes a profit or at 
least breaks even. 

Commissioner Sanger suggested that staff meet with the 
proponents of jitney service and other interested parties 
to discuss possible routes and other details of operation. 
President McCrea directed that this matter be continued until 
such a meeting is held. 



Item No. 11 — Regarding disposing of 25 PCC cars. 

This item was continued two weeks for additional information,

Code changes relative to construction contracts. 

This item was continued two weeks at the request of staff. 
President McCrea requested that the report be indexed or 
summarized and that excused delays be addressed. 



Resolution No. 80-0292 — Approving supplemental appropriation 
to purchase equipment to perform collection in-house. 

Commissioner Scott stated that banks perform these services 
on a regular basis. If the City resumes this function it will 
mean another transition period. Another problem is purchasing 
technical equipment of this type which may become obsolete in 
a few months . 



Resolution No. 80-0293 — Recommending to the San Francisco 
Municipal Railway Improvement Corporation that services be 
retained by contract. 

Commissioner Flynn asked how many positions were recommended,

INTRODUCTION OF NEW BUSINESS BY COWIISS TONERS 

Commissioner Flynn requested a written report at the next 
meeting from the Water Department stating the reason for 
several delinquent accounts and the steps staff is taking 
to collect lease payments. 



Commissioner Scott stated that only .03% of United Way funds 
go to agencies in the gay community which is not in 
proportion to the commianity's contribution. He asked if 
the Commission had any control over this program. Mr. Sklar 
said that the United Way campaign is a citywide effort 
coordinated fcy the Mayor's office. 



Commissioner Sanger requested a report on the July 8, 1980 
incident in the subway. 



Commissioner Sanger requested that staff submit a budget 
for the Bureau of Energy Conservation. President McCrea 
directed that it be calendared for August 26, 1980. 



Resolution No. 80-0313 — Declaring $8-million surplus to 
Hetch Hetchy and available to the General Fund. 

Mr. Dean Coffey, General Manager, Hetch Hetchy Water and 
Power, stated that this $8-million surplus from fiscal year 
1979-80 is the largest amount the department has ever 
transferred to the City's General Fund for the support of 
City operations. 



Resolution No. 80-0314 -- Authorizing disposal of 25 PCC cars. 

Commissioner Sanger asked what the streetcar requirement would 
be for the E-line, PCC service on Third Street and the surface 
of Market Street. Mr. Peter Straus, Acting Director of 
Planning, replied that an approximate number -would be 50 - 60 
cars. 

Commissioner Sanger moved the resolution authorizing 
disposal of 25 PCC cars with the addition of a resolved clause 
stating that if the bid price is less than $2,000 per car, 
parts shall be salvaged and vehicles disposed of for scrap. 
Commissioner Flynn seconded. 

President McCrea moved to include that the purchaser be 
instructed to give preference to non-profit museums that 
desire to take a car on permanent loan, provided that the 
recipient pays all transportation costs. Commissioner Sanger 
seconded. The resolution, as amended, was approved. 
Commissioners McCrea, Sanger and Flynn voted aye ; 
Commissioner Scott voted no. 



30-156 



Item No. 10 — fiunicipal P.ailv/ay 5-Year Plan. 

Due to the fact that copies of the updated 5-Year Plan have 
been available for only one week, President McCrea directed 
that this matter be continued to the meeting of August 26, 1980, 



Resolution No. 80-0316 — Authorizing Phase 2B, M\ani Metro. 

Commissioner Sanger moved and Commissioner Flynn seconded 
to waive the 60 day limitation on K-line service and to 
extend the K-line to Muni Metro Center. 



Item No. 12-a — Regarding newspaper kiosks in Muni Metro 
Stations. 

Mr. Raymond Bruno, representing the San Francisco Newspaper 
Printing Company, summarizing the proposal said that the lessee 
would pay $2.00 daily, per publication for each kiosk. Lessee 
would bare the cost for kiosks, approximately $1,800 each, 
plus installation. 

Commissioner Sanger said that he felt the mezzanine level 
was the appropriate place for such activity and that an 
exception should not be made which would allow newspapers 
as the sole commercial occupant on the platform level. 
The monetary provisions in the contract which prorate the 
cost of the kiosks on a per publication basis rather than 
on the number of newspapers sold would make it unfeasible 
for other publications. 

Commissioner Sanger moved to disapprove the proposed 
concession permit. Commissioner Flynn seconded. 
Commissioners Sanger and Flynn voted aye; Commissioners 
McCrea and Scott voted no. Motion failed. 



Resolution No. 80-0317 — Approving bid call for Hetch 
Hetchy Contract No. 6 37. 

Commissioner Sanger suggested that staff solicit designs 
for poles to hold overhead wires. President McCrea 
directed that the specifications reserve the right to 
substitute another pole design provided that the 
construction schedule can be maintained. 



Item No. 17 — Amendment to Chin and Hensolt agreement. 

President McCrea directed that this matter be taken off 
calendar until staff prepares a justification for 
additional space requirement at the cable car barn. 



Resolution No. 80-0 322 — Approving settlement of claim 
with Standard Oil Company of California. 

Commissioner Sanger moved and Commissioner Flynn seconded 
to excuse President McCrea from voting. Commissioner Flynn 
moved adoption of the resolution, seconded by Commissioner 
Scott. The resolution was adopted.

REPORT CF THE GENCR^'.L I^^KAGER 

Mr. Sklar reported that when the Muni Metro scheduled headv;ay 
of 4 minutes is exceeded in the morning peak period, riders 
are left on the platform at Forest Hill, Castro and Church 
Street stations. A headway management system will be 
installed to correct this situation. 



Mr. Sklar stated that he met with the Market Street Improve- 
ment Project which had supported removal of the tracks on 
Market Street. He explained that the only policy statement 
regarding the tracks is the Board of Supervisors' request 
that no action be taken without the Board taking a position 
on the proposed action. He explained that the Commission 
is committed to installing a rail line along The Embarcadero 
and that there is some support for leaving the tracks in place 
because of the possibility of extending the E - Embarcadero 
line up Market Street. At the conclusion of the meeting the 
Market Street Improvement Project reversed its position and 
issued a press release in favor of retaining the tracks. 



Mr. Sklar requested that Item 7b, awarding HH 589, be taken 
off calendar. 



INTRODUCTION OF NEW BUSINESS BY COMMISSIONERS

a letter from the residents of Tennessee Street regarding 
the re-routing of the 35 line. He requested that staff 
meet with the residents as there appears to be a misunder- 
standing. 



President McCrea requested that staff report to the Commission 
at the next meeting on the status of Muni Metro operations 
and level of ridership. 



Resolution No. 80-0399, requesting the Board of Supervisors 
to approve applying for, accepting and expending UMTA Section 
10 funds for attendance at the UMTA seminar in Human Resources 
Development, was introduced by the General Manager of Public 
Utilities and adopted by the Commission. 



Resolution No. 80-0400, directing staff to investigate and 
develop alternative financing arrangements through SFMRIC 
for the electrification of the 55-SACRAMENTO line, was

REP ORT OF THE GENERAL MANAGER 

At its Monday, October 27th meeting, the Board of Supervisors 
passed four resolutions, urging the Mayor to consider restoring 
service to routes prior to Phase IB. The Board's action is not 
at all appropriate. The success with the new routes has been 
wonderful. 

President McCrea again has requested from Peter Straus a Phase IB 
status report in writing ahead of time so that the Commissioners 
would have a chance to review it giving an assessment of current 
problems and successes with the route changes, and hopefully the 
Mayor will have sent recommendations from the Board over so that 
it can be dealt with all at one time. Commissioner Sanger has 
requested that Mr. Straus includ(2 in .lis report when he plans to 
do the traffic checks. 



80-191: 



Terror row is the Kick-Off Luncheon for the Cable Car Fund-Raiser. 
Mr. Virgil Caselli has put in a tremendous amount of energy to 
make it a success. We hope that this kick-off lunch will lead 
to a massive number of corporate gifts such as the one we have 
already received so that we can get the $10 million of private 
sector money to help match our federal grant. 

Mr. Sklar introduced Mr. Tom Rubin of Deloitte, Haskins & Sells 
who had just completed a Performance Audit study of the Muni. 
Copies of this study were made available to those present. 
President McCrea felt it would be more appropriate to discuss 
this audit at our next meeting in conjunction with whatever the 
General Manager and staff have put together as ways to respond 
to it and do it all at one time. 

Regarding reductions in service — we will have Mr. Figone produce 
each time when we have a sign-up, run cuts which is based upon 
sejTvico demand, a report of headway changes, additions and 
subtractions, line by line. 



Item No. 8 — Discussion of revenue requirements for fiscal 
year 1981-82. 

Commissioner Nancy C. Lenvin moved to direct Mr. Jed and Mr. 

Kelleher to come back with a proposal for a revenue study and 

a capital needs package., and was seconded by Commissioner Sanger, 



Item No. 10 -- Discussion of reorganization of Transportation 
Department. 

General Manager Dick Sklar presented background of activities, 
discussions and meetings held over the past four and a half 
months with Muni management, labor relations people, the union, 
consulting staff, and Ms. Branston to reorganize, restructure, 
revitalize the Operations Department to deal with our two major 
problems, namely, schedule adherence and safety improvement. He 
reviewed the report and recommendations of MORAC reference Transit 
Line Coordinator, and explained the proposed interim Operations 
reorganization and the future Operations reorganization. 



Item No. 11 — Discussion of Start-Up of Phase 3 - Muni Metro 
Service. 

Our current proposal is December 17th start. The only list that 
is not ready is the availability of operators in the quantity we 
need. 

President McCrea would like to have this item recalendared for 
two meetings before December 17. 



8)-l99 



Item No. 12 — Discussion of Safety on Vehicles. 

Possible Mechanisms to be placed on Muni vehicles relative to 
passenger safety from criminal attack. 

Mr. Curtis Green, General Manager, Muni, pointed out that the 
Silent alarm has been placed on all of our trolley equipment 
and as soon as possible we will be installing them on all of 
our other equipment, it will take from 15 to 18 months to 
modernize and $1-1/2 to $2 million. 

President McCrea reported on the very promising meeting with the 
Mayor and Chief Murphy, requested Curtis Green to monitor the 
performance of those things that were agreed upon, and secondly, 
he would like Mr. Green to set up a working level committee of 
the Operating supervisors. Union representatives, and Lt. Goad's 
staff, to work out administrative details of some of the things 
discussed at the meeting. 



Items No. 14 and 15 — Administration. 

Authorizing advertising for bids for a contract to provide 

accessible van services for the period starting January 1, 19 81 

through June 30, 1981 in the amount of $209,162; and setting 
criteria for award, and 

Authorizing advertising for bids for a contract for the management 
of a subsidized taxi program, in an amount not to exceed $32,000., 
for the period of January 1, 1981 through June 30, 19 81; and 
defining scope of said contract. 

Commissioner Lenvin requested the above two items taken off 
calendar for further development. After meeting today with MTC, 
MTC has agreed to request from UMTA an extension of time for our 
submission of the 504 Transition Plan. 



Item No. 16 — Discussion of proposed selection process for 
Limited Tenure emd non-Civil Service appointments . 

Dick Sklar referred to his Draft #4, and stated that this will be 
the policy that PUC will use effective December 1 on a final 
basis, and November 1 on an interim basis, for all of those 
appointments which do not come off a permanent Civil Service 
list, which nowadays seems to be the vast majority of our appoint- 
ments. Commissioner John Sanger feels it would be appropriate 
to calendar a resolution as a matter of Commission policy for 
next meeting.

PUBLIC HEARING — To consider application for UMTA, Section 3 
grant for capital programs totalling $21,681,512. 

A transcript of this hearing is on file in the office of the 
Secretary of the Public Utilities Commission. 

Mr. Leo Jed, Assistant General Manager, Bureau of Financial 
Management, PUC, summarized each project included in the 
grant application. 

Commissioner Hsieh requested that in the Geneva Division Redesign 
and Rehabilitation Project that consideration be given to a 
combination use of the site for low and moderate income housing 
on top of the vehicle storage area and that all reference to 
an engineering study be changed to a planning or architectural 
feasibility study. 

Mr. Cornell Gatewood, President, Transport Workers Union, Local 
250a, expressed concern about trainlining of vehicles and the 
possible elimination of operators. 

Mr. Maurice Klebolt, President, Citizens Advisory Panel to the 
Board of Supervisors for Transit Improvement, opposed train- 
lining and the purchase of new Light Rail Vehicles (LRV) . 

Mr. Fred Perry, expressed concern about purchasing new radios 
and LRVs when more diesel buses are needed. 

Mr. Norman Rolfe, representing San Francisco Tomorrow, supported 
the application, however, he suggested investigating the need 
for retaining an operator on each vehicle. 

******* 
Resolution No. 80-0476 — Rerouting Line 43-MASONIC. 

Mr. Tony Bruzzone of the Municipal Railway Transit Planning 
Division presented five alternative terminal locations in 
the Marina District for the Line 43-MASONIC. 

Mr. Thomas J. Hayes, representing the Marina Civic Association 
preferred the terminal location at the Presidio Gate. However, 
he did not object to the site on Scott at Chestnut Street. 

Ms. M. Allen said that she opposed the present terminal at 
Divisadero and Chestnut Streets and presented pictures 
showing congestion and blockage of the street at that 
location. 



80-214 



Mr- Bob Grill of the Explorator ium opposed the site at Scott 
and Chestnut Streets. He suggested that the terminal be 
located along side the Palace of Fine Arts. 

Mr. Russell Shrader supported the Scott and Chestnut location. 

******* 

Item 18 — Discussion of Municipal Railway's plan to meet U.S. 
Department of Transportation, Section 504 regulations for 
accessible transit service for handicapped persons. This 
item was taken out of order. An interpreter for the hearing 
impaired asked if anyone needed her services. There was 
no response. 

Mr. Leo Jed stated that federal regulations require that 
transit systems receiving capital and operating assistance must 
have one-half of their peak hour fleet accessible to transit 
handicapped persons by July 1982. If the system cannot comply 
by that date a transition plan must be submitted to cover the 
period until the time the requirement is met. 

The transition plan as developed by staff includes a vehicle 
replacement program, paratransit service using vans and taxis, 
and various other improvements such as better curbs, hand 
rails and signing. 

Ms. Arlene Wong, a member of the Paratransit Coordinating 
Council of San Francisco and the Elderly and Handicapped 
Advisory Committee, requested that the Commission re-apply 
to UMTA for funds to retrofit 50 trolley coaches with wheel- 
chair lifts. 

Commissioner Lenvin stated that the plan does not address 
the needs of those persons, approximately 6,000 in number, 
who cannot use public transit if it were made accessible 
and the allocation of transit dollars versus social services 
dollars to produce mobility for transit handicapped persons. 

President McCrea expressed concern about making the diesel 
fleet totally accessible while trolley coaches which service 
a different route structure will not be accessible. 

******* 
Item No. 15 — Discussion of Line 55 - Electrification Project. 

Mr. Fred Kreitzberg, consultant for this project, presented 
drawings of a substitute pole design for the overhead wiring. 
He said that a substitution of poles would mean a delay in the 
project of from three to five months. A delay might jeopardize 
State funding for electrification of the No. 24 line. 

Commissioner Sanger moved approval of the alternate pole 
design. The motion died for lack of a second.

in the City.

Item No. 16 ~ Discussion of MTC's performance audit of the 
Municipal Railway 

Ms. Ann Branston, Manager, Bureau of Performance Monitoring, said 
that the performance audit process was useful and constructive

Item No. 18 — Discussion of budget assumptions to be used in 
preparation of Municipal Railway 1981-82 budget. 

President McCrea reported that he had met with the Mayor re- 
garding the Municipal Railway budget for 1981-82. As a result 
of that meeting, staff should assume, for budget preparation 
purposes, the same level of general fund support as this year, 
plus the extraordinary revenues this year due to the carry- 
over of AB 1107 funds, plus salary standardization. Other 
inflationary costs should be covered by revenues or cost savings. 
An alternative budget requiring $5 million less in general fund 
support should be prepared identifying necessary service re- 
ductions. Any expansion of service must be funded by the transit 
development fee which is still pending at the Board of 

Supervisors. 

************* 



80-221 



REPORT OF THE GENERAL MANAGER (continued) 

Mr. Sklar reported that the Budget Analyst for the Board of 
Supervisors will recommend to the Finance Committee that 
approval of the 20 year gravel quarry lease to Santa Clara Sand 
and Gravel Company be conditioned upon the inclusion of a 
provision to adjust the base royalty payment every 5 years. 
Should the Finance Committee require that the provision be 
incorporated into the lease, Mr. Sklar requested the 
Commission's prior concurrence subject to the lessee's 
approval. 

Commissioner Lenvin moved and Commissioner Sanger seconded 
approval of the provision, should it be required by the 
Board of Supervisors.

Resolution No. 80-0522 — Approving revision of route 35-EUREKA. 

Mr. Peter Straus, Director of Planning, presented the staff 
proposal which had been presented at a meeting in the community 
on December 18, 1980. 

Two residents of DeHaro Street supported the staff proposal. 

Ms. Mary McCray and Carol Seville from Wisconsin Street said the 
change would mean two bus lines on Wisconsin Street. They 
support one bus line per street, 

Ms. Evelyn Franklin suggested jitney service. 

Mr. Jim Loskcava said he fought for service on Potrero Hill which 
is badly needed. However, he is against excessive use of buses. 

A resident from 22nd and Arkansas Streets said that low ridership 
is only on the off-peak hours. Both the 53-SOUTHERN HEIGHTS and 
the 35-EUREKA are serving the public. 

Ms. Margaret Little requested that bus distribution be fair. 

Mr. Rod Dixon from lower Potrero Hill said that the 35-EUREKA is 
greatly used to get to the Neighborhood House which has programs 
for senior citizens and handicapped persons. The 53-SOUTHERN 
HEIGHTS is used extensively by people living in the housing 
project to get to Safeway and Mission Street. 

Mr. Jeff Sutter spoke in support of retaining good service on 
Potrero Hill by retaining both bus lines. 

A resident of DeHaro Street said that she collected 132 signatures 
on a petition supporting the staff proposal for rerouting. 

Commissioner Sanger moved. Commissioner Flynn seconded, endorsement 
of the staff proposal and directed staff to investigate the 
feasibility of "shortlining" the 35-EUREKA and reporting its 
findings to the Commission in January, 1981.
